“This is the World Cup and it is wrong to under-rate any team. We won two of our three matches and had the same number of points in our group as Brazil and Italy. We are no pushovers in this campaign.

“It is going to be an interesting game. We want the quarter-final ticket and the Argentines also want the quarter-final ticket. We will go in there and dig our feet into the ground.”

“We have to fight for the trophy. I think it is still open. Everybody can be there, and I believe we have the capacity to be there,” Bosso told media.

“We are into the knockout stage, and in the knockout stage, there is an approach, we can employ it, and we hope we’d have our plans executed accordingly,” the tactician noted.

The game will kick off at 10pm Nigerian time.
